Newspaper Articles about Ethical Issues
Car manufacturers and airbags. One of the most difficult ethical decisions a company makes is: When is there enough evidence of a safety issue to warrant a recall and product replacement? A few years ago, I wrote a case about juice maker Nutritional Foods, which day after day and even hour by hour recorded the accumulated evidence of a poisoning problem in the company`s apple juice. What day should they remember apple juice? And they should also remember all the other blends that use even 1% apple juice. Today, a similar problem occupies the automotive industry. Lawyers sued major automakers over Takata`s dangerous airbags, which eventually led to a recall of 42 million vehicles. They argue that automakers have known about this dangerous mistake for years and did not act because they wanted to save money. The ethical question of responsibility will be at the heart of this dispute. The media as “enemies of the people”. The words and actions of President Trump and his adviser Steve Bannon last week seemed nothing less than an attempt to delegitimize the role of the free press in the United States. The White House press secretary excluded reporters from several major news organizations critical of the president from his daily press briefing. At the CPAC conference, Bannon warned, “The situation is getting worse every day for the media.” This could be dangerous for the American people and our form of government.
We believe in the separation of powers, and the free press has proven more than once to be an essential check on threats to American freedom. Today, former President George W. Bush and former presidential candidate John McCain, both Republicans, have sounded the alarm on this ethical issue. Over the past six months, the Uttarakhand Medical Board (UKMC) has informed 41 doctors of the breach of its Professional Conduct, Etiquette and Ethics Regulations 2002 by agreeing to appear in advertisements on posters, banners and newspapers. The last battle for the truth. I commented on the president`s continued and deliberate use of lies in a previous “ethical fix.” There are signs of resistance, on the part of the media, which has clearly called the president a “lie”, but also of elements of the government bureaucracy who have compiled data compiled by the government itself that directly contradicts the president. The most recent example is the short report by Department of Homeland Security analysts. They say there is no evidence that the seven countries targeted by the president`s immigration ban pose any particular risk. The White House`s response is to attack bureaucracy and leaks. Every president has attacked the leaks, but there are big ethical decisions made today by government officials and by leaks that risk the wrath of the White House.
The country`s largest exporter of IT services, TCS, said Monday that undeclared work is an “ethical issue” and violates its core values, but has taken no action against employees. Following several incidents of stray dog killings across the country in recent months, the Animal Welfare Board of India (AWBI) issued a recommendation last week stating that regular and full implementation of the Animal Birth Control (ABC) programme is the only legal and ethical way to minimise cricket by working with players on sponsorship agreements and taking into account their views on sustainability and ethical concerns. That`s what Australian bowler Adam Zampa said on Wednesday. Ethical issues have been in the news over the past week. Here are four to watch: On Wednesday, Apple began selling regular consumers the parts and tools needed to fix common iPhone issues themselves for the first time. Your values and your portfolio. It seems that the younger a consumer is, the more likely they are to believe that your values should influence your purchase. Fair trade practices, responsible environmental performance and corporate commitment to social change have been used by consumer groups and activists to motivate “responsible” purchasing and good corporate behaviour.
Recently, more and more consumers are also trying to punish bad behavior; A growing number of cities have withdrawn banking services from Wells Fargo, for example, due to the recent scandal. Now, the focus is on all products associated with the Trump family or companies whose executives sit on Trump`s advisory boards. A profile posted over the weekend outlined the activist`s motivations and tactics behind the anti-Trump buying campaign. The ethical question in this case is whether it is “fair” to punish a company for the activities of its owners or directors, or to punish a retailer for selling a product made by someone you disagree with. On the other hand, some activists argue that it is ethically obligatory to use your purchasing power in this way. Sandip Patel, managing director of IBM India, said undeclared work was not ethical. In response to a question on the issue, Patel said he shared Wipro President Rishad Premji`s view on the issue. Premji described undeclared work as “outright fraud.” Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced his resignation Thursday amid a mass revolt by leading members of his government, marking the end of three tumultuous years in power during which he shamelessly bowed and at times broke the rules of British politics.
